My daughter use to work at a fruit and vegetable stand which was absolutely wonderful. I always had a beautiful supply of fresh ingredients all summer long. One year, I got tired of pitting cherries and I found this recipe. It's been a family favorite since... the adult family members, that is! =) Enjoy as is, in mixed drinks, teas, fruit juices or over ice cream.

My recipe using jarred maraschino cherries will follow in the comments section. So easy and delicious!
